Russell Stover Candies

In 1923, Mr. & Mrs. Russell Stover began a candy business in their bungalow home in Denver, Colorado. He became the candy salesman, and she was the candy maker. The original candy was marketed as "Mrs. Stover's Bungalow Candies" and "Bungalow Stores" were established to sell "home-fashioned" chocolates to an enthusiastic public.

After twenty years the name was changed to "Russell Stover Candies"… a name that has become synonymous with quality boxed chocolates. Mr. and Mrs. Stover established the principles that were successful then, and we have continued to this day to follow in that same tradition. The three principles of "quality", "service" and "value" allow Russell Stover Candies to remain "Only the Finest".

For 36 years, the Stover family and their partners operated the company. In 1960, the partnership dissolved and the company was purchased by Mr. Louis Ward. The company has grown from a quality producer on a regional scale, to an international company, with sales in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. Russell Stover Candies is the largest producer of fine boxed chocolates in the United States. With the company's continuing growth and success, Russell Stover Candies acquired Whitman's Candy Company, a company that has recently celebrated its 160th birthday as a producer and manufacturer of the assorted chocolates. In March of 1999, Russell Stover also acquired Pangburn's Chocolate Company, making Russell Stover the Number One selling boxed chocolate brand in America and the largest producer of hand-dipped chocolates in the world.
